Youth Worker Retreat

On Monday Feb 15 I will be running YWJ’s first online retreat day.

A time of silence to confront the storms in your life

A time of solitude to share with myself and other CYWrs

A time of simplicity to examine the complexity of your living and working and your believing

In short it is a set-apart time for you to honestly meet God and for God to meet you.

The plan is to do the retreat in your own place, based on material I will send to you beforehand. Some sessions will be shared, others will an opportunity for you to be in solitude outside or in the comfort of your own home.

The day will cost £10 and for more details or to book up please message me on FB or email me at

I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
